Waiter's and or Waitress's coming and asking you if your meal is ok. Look I know you are only just doing your job but if there was something wrong with my meal I would be bringing it to your attention. Asking me when I have a mouth full of food annoys me no end. 

 

Please just leave us be to enjoy our meal and conversation.

So true. They always ask two seconds after you fill your mouth. And interrupt conversations.

Also this seems to mean "Good I don't have to come back to this table again" because if there is another bad thing in NZ cafés is how hard it is to grab someone's attention when you want another drink or order desserts.

In America, some restaurants have coloured panels or signs on the table if you want attention.

Wildfire at Princes Wharf have a cylindrical piece of timber with different colours painted on each end. Depending on which way up you place the cylinder it means "Leave us alone" or "Come hither" to the serving staff.





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

Mail being delivered in clear plastic envelopes. What a waste as they can't be recycled.

Through an afternoon on the phone:

 

(Thanks to The Banking Ombudsman advising me one bank offered the ability to disable payWave - but could not say who. They also get a lot of queries for this!)

 

ASB offer for their VISA cards the following via their "real time app"):

 

     

  • Lock your card if you lose it or it’s stolen.
  • Set a spending limit.
  • Turn on or off ATM cash withdrawals.
  • Turn on or off Visa payWave transactions.
  • Turn on or off in-store international transactions.
  • Turn on or off online transactions.

Off to the ASB when I get the chance :-)

Yeah the ASB let you do quite a lot with your cards via their app, it's refreshing to see they give you some control!

If it's an Intel graphics card, Alt+Ctrl and the arrow keys should change the roatation. 

 

 

I just gave this a go and it technically works... but only seems to rotate the primary display. I tried holding Shift in the hope it'd do the secondary but no such luck.
